General Election success

John was part of an influential radical left wing movement to emerge in Dundee in the 1920s, which was ultimately responsible for the election of two anti-war pacifists, E.D. Morel and Edwin Scrymgeour, in the 1922 General Election. On that day the McTaggart family also celebrated their part in Morel and Scrymgeour’s General Election victory in Dundee. Churchill left the city defeated and old wounds began to heal.
